Description

The iconography of Kuan Yin depicts her in many forms, each one revealing a unique aspect of her merciful presence.  In this statue she is portrayed standing on a blooming lotus base with water lilies.  She wears a beautiful flowing robe and ornaments symbolic of her virtues.  In her left hand she holds a vase of amrita, the dew of compassion, which can remove suffering and purify our tainted bodies, speech and mind.  In her right she holds the jewel of the three treasures.  Her head is bent slightly forward as if looking, listening for any cry for help.  Her crown depicts the image of Amitabha Buddha, the most ancient Buddha among the Dhyani Buddhas.  The wood grain has a beautiful gradation of color.  The carving on this piece is absolutely superb!!!

About Kuan Yin:
Kwan Yin (also spelled Kuan Yin, Quan Yin or Guan Yin), is known as the Goddess of Compassion, and she is one of the most popular deities in all of Asia.  Her name in Chinese roughly translates to "The One Who hears the Cries of the World".  Many believe that she is the female representation of Avalokiteshvara, the Tibetan and Nepalese God of Compassion.  As a Bodhisattva, she has chosen to put off her complete, unexcelled, perfect enlightenment for the benefit of beings everywhere, and will wait as long as there is one being who is not enlightened.

This wood sculpture is a one of a kind statue, hand carved by the artists of Bali, Indonesia.  Every piece is truly unique!
